Community Church of Kamrar Cemetery

Independence Township, Hamilton County, Iowa

     community church of kamrar

This is a record of the Community Church of Kamrar Cemetery.  The Community Church was formed in October 1980, when members of the Presbyterian Church (in Liberty Township) separated over church doctrine issues.  After several years of meeting in local Kamrar businesses, the Community Church of Kamrar was built in 1986 in its current location.  The first service in the new church was Easter Sunday 1986.


The Community Church of Kamrar is located on Hwy D-41 southeast of Kamrar, Iowa in Independence Township.  The cemetery was established in 1989 and is located west of the church parking lot.


The cemetery was walked and photographed June 2010 by Jackie Frederick.
